Product DescriptionAnother seminal masterpiece, the 1970 classic featuring many of the Dead’s best-known songs – “Sugar Magnolia” and “Friend Of The Devil” among others – now has 6 extra tracks, including the single version of “Truckin'”, the first electric recording of “Candyman,” and one of the few live performances of “Till The Morning Comes.”

Amazon.comWho says discipline is a bad thing? No one who’s heard American Beauty, the Dead’s greatest studio achievement. Showcasing 10 concise, country-rooted gems that sound equally good whether you’re hanging on the front porch in the afternoon or nursing a bottle after hours, this one could win over many an anti-Jerry. Bewildered by loss both personal and social–the hippie dream was quickly crashing by Beauty‘s 1970 release date–the band put its querulousness (“Box of Rain”) and wry humor (“Truckin'”) into the service of a masterwork. The most impressive cut of all may be “Ripple,” Garcia’s spiritual credo. –Rickey Wright
